Following late-night crunch talks between both sides, Mr Barnier disclosed to the EU27 ambassadors that the disagreement over the level playing field, fisheries and governance are still unbroken.

A senior EU official that’s familiar with the negotiations said, “both sides are making progress every day”.

But a UK government source last night debunked the claim, saying,  “There’s been no breakthrough on fish. Nothing new has been achieved on this“.

Mr Barnier is expected back to talks with David Frost after the briefing as they continue looking for a way to reach final compromises available.
